So much for the wisdom of the stupid ‘all options on the table’ pandering to the Zionist-NeoCon Lobby
…by Press TV, Tehran, with Jim W. Dean commentary
Update: This was the top story on Press TV today
[ Editors Note: Well, this was no real surprise. We have been saying all along that Iran’s major deterrent to a pre-emptive attack is to have a devastating response which would collapse the world house of cards economic system.
Then the various newly-destitute publics could deal with their respective governments who claimed that Iran was a threat which had to be eliminated.
And the result of that should be a lot of leaders hanging from light poles because they would have actually wrought all that devastation upon us themselves, and they should be the first ones to pay…as a deterrent to their replacements. The challenge facing all of us ‘bull pen victims’ is to make THEM pay, before they make US pay, not afterwards.
The Western bullies still childishly claim how sanctions brought Iran to its knees while we continually threatened them with attack for a nuclear program they did not have — purely as a smokescreen cover for our forward deployment against Russia and China, who are no military threat to us at all.
During that time, Iran had no choice but to prepare for a non-nuclear military and economic response that would have the whole world screaming for the blood of the attackers. What is long forgotten now is that these silly threat games started back when Iran had less than a 100 centrifuges.
The West’s attempt to do a ‘color revolution’ in Iran did not work. Assassinating their nuclear scientists, hoping some tough hardliners in Iran would run their own retaliation operation, did not work.
The Afghanistan and Iraq wars did not work. We are in a much more dangerous situation than before the wars, with the danger being our own leadership…the watermark has been the Bush-Cheney gangsters. They destroyed our economy, and have yet to even get a traffic ticket for it.
A report came out this week that the EU banks are hugely under capitalized…and 60+ billion is needed to shore them up.
No one is offering to empty their piggy-banks to help out — one of the reasons the EU could not give Ukraine the cash it wanted to close their affiliation deal.
Any major war in the Gulf would bring it all crashing down, and I don’t mean the temporary market crash with the usual recovery, as in the past.
That is why we are seeing the new drive toward the proxy terror wars, and the West has been quietly supportive of it. In the end…it turns out that we were the real Al Qaeda…the big one. It all sounds like a movie script… Jim W. Dean ]

Iran’s Armed Forces chief of staff has dismissed US officials’ threats of military action against Iran as “political bluff”, saying the Islamic Republic is ready for the “decisive” battle against the US and Israel.
“We are ready for the decisive war with the US and the Zionist regime [of Israel],” said Major General Hassan Firouzabadi on Wednesday.
Iran has been planning for such a battle for years by carrying out various drills, he said, stressing that Iran’s Armed Forces are prepared to fend off any military aggression.
The top commander warned that in case of aggression against Iran, all the US and Israeli interests will be targeted, “We warn that if our forces come under attack from any territory, we will hit all the positions which belong to that [territory],” Firouzabadi said.
He said Iran harbors no hostility towards any of the countries in the region, but “if we are attacked from US bases in the region, we will target that place.”
The senior commander made the remarks in reaction to US officials’ threats in recent weeks that all options, including the military one, are on the table against Iran.
Meanwhile, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani also said on Tuesday that the rhetoric of threat against the Iranian nation is “worthless and childish.”
“On behalf of the nation of Iran, I declare with a clear voice that threatening the nation of Iran is worthless and childish since our nation has, over the past 35 years, stood up to various threats from the enemy and been victorious,” the president said in an address to a massive gathering of people celebrating the victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Tehran on Tuesday.
